Australian Geology Travel Maps is a field app that displays the best available data from the government geological surveys in interactive maps created by Trilobite Solutions. It does not have any reliance on cell phone reception in the field, and uses GPS so your location is always marked on the map. Maps are downloaded to your phone when have an internet connection, and from that point on, you are independent of the internet.

The simple geology maps are rich with contextual data - including shaded relief, roads, towns, tracks, rivers, lakes, geographic names, indigenous land, national parks & provincial parks.

App development, system maintenance and user support is fully-funded by subscriptions - there is no in-app advertising and your data is absolutely PRIVATE.

This is the most comprehensive and versatile App I have found for my needs. I prospect and detect for gold all over Australia and use it to extensively research locations before I arrive at my destinations, then it’s used in the field to pinpoint these areas of interest. The Australian Geology App is so portable and has the great advantage that it can be used in those remote areas where there is no internet. Besides using this App for gold prospecting I’m constantly using it on a daily basis when I’m travelling around Australia. What a great education tool.
The developer has created the perfect App and is to be congratulated. I can thoroughly recommend it to anybody who is travelling Australia.

Fantastic traverse feature

As a professional geologist have tried a number of apps for geologic maps. A brilliant feature of the app is the spoken alert when crossing mapped boundaries and features.

The best moving map for prospectors i have used by far. Easy to download maps and data. Update WA mining tenements whenever you want. Subscription is only the cost of 1 gram of gold for every five years.
